M260: How to Win Big at Vegas - Game Theory in Splash Spring 2019 (Apr. 20, 2019)
Games are all about chance - but can we stack the odds in our favor? In this class, we will explore game theory by playing games ourselves. Combining mathematics with psychology, we will learn how we make decisions, as well as how we can use statistics to gain the upper hand. We can't promise that you'll strike it rich the next time you head to the casinos, but it's a start!

H261: Creativity - Rewiring Your Brain in Splash Spring 2019 (Apr. 20, 2019)
What do the words "pine", "crab", and "sauce" have in common? They all relate to the word "apple"! Everyone wants to "be more creative" - but what does that even mean? And is it even possible? In this class, we will discover what makes an innovative thinker, and how you can apply those skills in your daily life. Come prepared to partake in some fun psychological experiments (aka, play creativity games like the one above!)

A262: Improv 101 in Splash Spring 2019 (Apr. 20, 2019)
Do your friends always call you the funniest person they know? Or maybe you want to brush up on your confidence in public speaking. Perhaps you just want to have a great time with some of the coolest people at Splash! This class is a fun introduction to comedy improvisation, and we will be actively playing games and exercises the entire hour! You'll get to practice being relaxed and spontaneous, as well as learn about teamwork, storytelling, and listening to one another. No prior experience is necessary; just bring yourself and get ready to have fun!
